* Pictures, Pictures, Pictures * We are going to practice taking pictures with digital cameras today. Each person in your group of 3 will get a chance to take pictures, so work together and share the camera. Read the rules and steps below to learn how to take pictures with the digital camera. If you have read it before, please read it again as a reminder. ***CAMERA RULES*** 1. Only touch the camera when the steps tell you to do so. 2. Always use 2 hands when handling the camera. 3. Hand it gently to your group members. 4. Only take pictures when you are told to do so in the directions. 5. When you are done, turn it off and place it back in the case. 6. **Follow these rules and the steps correctly, or you will be asked to step out of the group.** Step 1: Who gets to take a picture first? Each person in your group will get the chance to use the camera. The person whose first name begins with a letter closest to “z” gets to use it first. The person whose first name begins with a letter closest to the letter “a” gets to go second. Then, the last person may take his or her pictures. Use our alphabetizing rules to help you decide the order if two names begin with the same letter. Step 2: How do we use the camera? The person who gets to go first may use both hands to pick up the camera and turn it on. To turn it on, push the button on the top that has a small arrow ( ) pointing to it. (I put the arrow there to help you find it, so please do not take it off.) Hold the camera out in front of you so that you can see the screen. Whatever you see in the screen will become your picture. Press down on the button with the happy face ( ) to take a picture. Step 3: What if I need to zoom in or out? If you need to get closer, press the small button with the “magnifying glass” ( ) until you see the image you want in the screen. Then, take a picture! If you need to zoom out, press the button that is next to the magnifying glass and repeat the last directions. Step 4: How do I see my pictures? To see your pictures, press the little triangle ( ) next to the picture of the camera. This is the “play” button. You should see the last picture you took on the screen. Push the arrows to the left or right to see the other pictures you have taken. Step 5: Now what? When you are finished, either hand the camera to the next group member, or turn it off and place it back in the case for the next group to use!
